AAU Team: Team Loaded
High School: Mouth of Wilson (VA) Oak Hill
Notes: Next week Cody Martin and his brother, Caleb Martin, will head to Charlottesville, Virginia for the highly-regarded NBPA Top 100 Camp that features the nation's top high school players.
"We have been waiting on that invite forever," said Cody. "We're just blessed to be invited to it. We're going to take advantage of it and show what we can do. We're going to keep working hard and be ready for the great competition."
Cody has definitely been working hard on his game. Known for his ability to make shots, and plays, from 15-feet and in, he has been knocking down 3-pointers and attacking the basket much more frequently from the perimeter, and it will only help the Wolfpack commitment as he moves on in his career.
"In high school my brother was mainly on the perimeter so I would work more inside," he stated. "I was so used to the 15-footer, driving and rebounding, but then when AAU started I began to work on my three-pointers and ballhandling, and it's carried over. I'm more confident in my shot.
"Now I'm going to try and add weight. That's what I want to do next... and continue to work on the mid-range and my footwork, shooting... really everything. I want to be able to create shots for myself."
Here are some highlights of Martin in action from this spring's Carolina Challenge and Southern Jam Fest.
